His Excellency the Prime Minister, Mr. Sa’ed

Pursuant to the verbal conversations, the content of the order that was sent by a secret code to all Governors General and governors on 23 Mordad [1323] [14 August 1944] has been submitted as an attachment, so that you may exert the utmost effort to eliminate the root causes of disturbance and corruption, and inform the Centre of whatever means you may require to achieve this end. Meanwhile, it was also requested that the Ministries of War and National Defence and Justice issue orders to the authorities of those ministries in the provinces to render any necessary assistance to achieve this purpose.
